Newcastle United vs. Chelsea - Football Match Report

Sarri's Napoli pushed Juventus all the way in Serie A last season Sarri’s Napoli pushed Juventus all the way in Serie A last season

Like Chelsea, the humble Hertfordshire club, whose only season in European football was 35 years ago, completed their third victory from three games on Sunday, when they beat Crystal Palace 2-1 to add to victories over Brighton and Burnley.

Maurizio Sarri has admitted that he was surprised at Rafa Benitez's tactics during Chelsea's 2-1 win over Newcastle at St James' Park this afternoon.

Newcastle's DeAndre Yedlin deflected Alonso's low drive goalwards and it found the back of the net in the 87th minute, but Alonso said he should get the credit.

"We knew that here is a hard game for us, because only in the last season Chelsea lost here, Manchester United lost here, Arsenal lost here", Sarri said. "I have never seen Benitez in Italy with five defenders, so at the beginning I was really surprised". "These two situations, we were very close".

"To draw with five minutes to the end for us it would have been more hard". Asked if he was angry at the apparent elbow from Yedlin, Sarri said: "No, I thought only it was the first time of our opponent in our box, it is impossible, was a bit unlucky, but I don't know if it was an elbow or not. They are a good team and candidates for the title". "We did well, created a lot of chances and we deserved to win".

Meanwhile, Benitez claimed Lascelles was missing because of an ankle injury but did not deny a fall-out.

Speaking at his pre-match news conference on Friday, Sarri said: "For us Willian is a very useful player so I am sure he will remain here for this season, and I hope for the future, but a new contract is out of my responsibility".

However, Yedlin then gave away the free-kick which led to Chelsea's victor. Talking about it, Spanish left-back said, "I think I touch the ball and then I get in front of the player, in between the player and the ball and when I'm going to pass to [Olivier] Giroud, I just went down because he makes me down. Now, though, the table is not important", Sarri said. "It was the preferred [option], so it was impossible for him to rest".
